How long will it take for my nerves to heal? (Possible PN)
I got into a small car accident where my legs are squished and my nerves got damaged. I was in the hospital getting treated for mostly organ problems but I was not treated for the nerve damage to my feet and legs. They did many tests (EMG, MRI, etc) and I think positive results came out in all of them because all the doctors said was to wait it out for my legs to heal.
Its been around 25 days since the accident and I haven't seen too much improvement other than the movement of my toes only on my left leg. The pain is getting worse and worse and I don't know what I should do. Should I go back to the hospital or does healing nerves usually take this long and pain gradually grows? I am only 19 years old also. THanks
